Notes

Press release: "A recording of a panel discussion from Sci-Fi London in 2010 - Celebrating the continuing popularity of the iconic British Space Hero whose first appearance in the Eagle was published in April 1950, comics historian and writer John Freeman (The Science Service / Ex Astris)) talks to a quartet of artists and writers who have created new adventures for the lantern jawed pilot in more recent years.

These include:

Garry Leach, who drew Dan’s return to print in 2000AD, ten years after the end of the original Eagle, in the late 1970s and more recently covers for Virgin comics’ revival of the ‘Pilot of the future’ in 2008.

Rian Hughes, who drew the Eagle inspired comic The Science Service in 1989 and then the Mekon’s final revenge in the Thatcherite satire Dare in the adult comics Revolver and Crisis a year later.

Gary Erskine, who drew Dan Dare’s most recent official comic book adventures in the Virgin Comics periodical of the same name.

Rod Barzilay, the editor and one of the writers of Spaceship Away, a Dan Dare fanzine that has continued the original adventures of Spacefleet where the 1950s Eagle left off for the past seven years.

This recording covers Dare's appearance in print from the 1950s to the 1980s. (Recorded and edited by Alex Fitch)"
